K-Midd chose the pale pink and pleated Emilia Wickstead dress she wore less than two weeks ago at Windsor Castle. Kate changed out the accessories--gone were the pink satin Pradas (thank gawd, we say!) in favour of day friendly L.K. Bennett Sledge nude pumps and Natalie clutch. Kate also added a pretty Jane Corbett hat accented with raffia and lace and pearl drop earrings.
While we can't fault Kate on her attractive garden look--the pastel and ladylike design are right on trend--we do think recycling a dress so soon may not be the best choice. Thoughts?

Pippa Middleton appeared at a wedding in Scotland this weekend wearing the same style Issa wrap dress that big sister Kate wore when announcing her engagement to Prince William. Even the shoes look pretty much the same. Still, we think this is a perfect example of why we'd take Kate over Pippa any day. Not only is the royal blue the classier choice, but Kate just kills in this dress while Pipster doesn't wow us.
What do you think? Kate or Pippa?

At the Queen's Jubilee lunch the British royal family welcomed brethren from dozens of countries at a chic lunch at Windsor Castle. The Duchess of Cambridge looked pretty in pink in an Emilia Wickstead coat dress paired with the pink satin Prada square-toed heels and clutch that we've seen before. Kate completed her accessories with diamond earrings and a new leaf-shaped brooch. The Wickstead piece was made-to-measure and based on the designer's Alice design. Kate's version had longer sleeves and a longer hemline on the pleated skirt.
Here's the thing, the Duchess' dress is pretty, classic. We can imagine that at an event celebrating the Queen it would have been inappropriate for Kate to try to outshine the reigning monarch. Still, we can't say we love this outfit, especially the shoes, which we've seen before at the weddings of Peter Phillips and Charlie Savory. The pale colour scheme is also reminiscent of the Joseph dress Kate wore to the private viewing of her wedding exhibit at Buckingham Palace.
We've heard a lot of people praising Princess Charlene in her pale blue satin suit, but we really don't get all the love. Seriously, she looks like Michelle Phillips circa Knots Landing. And those over plumped fish lips? No Charlene, just no.
The Runaway Princess Bride did better for the Jubilee Monarchs Dinner later in the evening. We love this dress on her and the 20s waves in her hair. She looks so much softer and more youthful.
Princess Rania of Jordan, a perennial favourite on this blog, kind of confounds with her daytime outfit. We're definitely on the fence with this one. What do you think?

We're also fans of the sky high wedge sandals the Duchess was sporting. In case you're wondering these cork wedge wonders are the Stuart Weitzman Minx Espadrille. Kate also accessorized with her Kiki McDonough Grace topaz studs.
Also along for the fun? Man's best friend, puppy Lupo.

We love when we look at a Kate Middleton outfit and only one word comes to mind: love. This is what we thought when we spotted the Duchess of Cambridge's gown at the Greatest Team Rises Olympic Event. Kate looked gorgeous and glamorous and youthful in her customized Jenny Packham bridal gown (the "Aspen"). We love it all--from the bejewelled belt (we're thinking belts could become a real Kate trademark) to the flowing pleats--but especially the teal colour, the lace and the braids, three things we're pretty much obsessed with around here. Ob-sessed. Not to mention anything that sparkles.
And can we just talk about the back of this gown for a minute? Classy drama. Le sigh. K-Midd, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you. And we need to see more of this, glamour and styles that are still very Kate. Can we also say we're pretty much dying over the cap sleeves?
Accessories included Kate's seen before Jimmy Choo Vamp Sandals (first debuted at the BAFTA dinner in L.A.), a teal clutch covered in lace, and a pair of dangly, sparkly earrings.

Kate's dress is the Davina dress and Jude jacket from Reiss, paired with the "Fairy Tale" hate from Lock + Co, black pumps and clutch, and Kiki McDonough amethyst earrings.
If there's one thing we hate it's sitting on the fence, but we've become increasingly familiar with the place due to Kate Middleton's recent outfits. We look at what the Duchess is wearing and find ourselves somewhere in the middle of Love It! Land and OMGNoes! Village.

The white Roland Mouret dress that Kate Middleton wore to dinner at the Thirty Club in London (where Prince William gave a speech) has us sitting in that uncomfortable position. On the one hand we're kind of intrigued by the straight, clean lines, the creamy white colour, the hint of leg from the thigh high slit. We also love the choice of Jimmy Coo Vamp sandals and dark toes for a little youthful flair. And still, something is a little bit off. We don't lurve this look. Just for some added interest this dress (the "Lombard") was worn by Carla Bruni and supermodel Amber Valletta before this version of it made its way to Kate.
These photos are courtesy of The Daily Mail who report that Kate's sparkly clutch is also Jimmy Choo and her vintage-y sparkly dangle earrings are the Eva from Beaut.
